Saje Wellness Debuts A Stunning Line Of 100% Natural Home Cleaning Supplies

April 19, 2018

I have been obsessed with Saje Natural Wellness  ever since I discovered their essential oils which blew all my others out of the ballpark. I am never without my Pocket Farmacy and the Blend Bar sits on my desk. And now my son, 7, carries the inhaler around at school and it makes him feel really cool. (With a warning DON’T YOU DARE LET SOME RUNNY NOSE KID STICK IT IN THEIR NOSE!).

Ok, so now it gets even better with their debut of  this line of products for “Clean Cleaning” – their first 100% natural home cleaning line formulated with three things in mind: health, wellness and safety of your family.

I’m sure you know by now as you are smart, dear readers, you ONLY want to approach your home the same way you do your bod…. And you can do so by protecting your family from some of the 200 chemicals we are exposed to as part of our daily routines, including cleaning your home.

Guess what…Those clean or green lines you see at Target ? ( I won’t name them) are dripping with synthetic chemicals. Not here.

No artificial ingredients, just nature. I just stocked up and was so busy cleaning with them, I literally could not remember where I left one – I had it in EVERY CORNER OF MY HOME! I think it’s in a closet somewhere?

Also the price is really right too, thank god. 

Like all Saje Natural Wellness products, the Clean Cleaning line is:

  • 100% natural, formulated from plant and mineral-based ingredients
  • Free from harmful synthetic toxins found in many cleaning products
  • Free from artificial fragrances: just natural aromas from pure essential oils

The line consists of…

OH! And here are the blends I can’t live without…Also their diffusers are BOMB!!!

(MALIN+GOETZ) x La Ligne Collaboration To Celebrate 4/20

April 18, 2018

My long running romance with (MALIN+GOETZ) is deep. First of all, founder Andrew Goetz was my big brother’s dear friend growing up and all I can remember is Andrew (ok Andy back then) being the funniest, coolest and warmest of all my bro’s friends. Everyone loved Andrew and now, the WORLD loves the line he created with Matthew Malin. Who doesn’t want to take home those little bottles when you see them in select (best) hotels and bathrooms. Ok, who DOESN’T just scoop them all and stash them in your bags, suitcases or wherever else you can find a little room.

So check out this rad collab with the obsessively addictive striped apparel brand La Ligne,founded by a trio of girls you just wanna be bff’s with,Molly Howard, Meredith Melling and Valerie Boster. Insert the little hand raising emoji here please.

The two simplistic brands, each known for creating everyday essentials in beauty and fashion, have partnered up to create a limited edition “High Notes” collection in honor of 4/20, (sweet!) inspired by the recent progress in the legalization of marijuana (hella yass).

The set includes the m+g cult-favorite Cannabis candle and an exclusive La Ligne ringer tee, specially embroidered with the phrase, “Sticky Icky.” The High Notes set is available for purchase as of Monday (4/16) on malinandgoetz.com.

HOW FREAKIN FAB?
What a cool cannabis collab. Sign me up and light it up. 🙂

Candace Marino – Aesthetician at Jason Emer, MD.

April 8, 2018

Some people get excited when they spot a celebrity. I get giddy when I meet a new practitioner, healer, therapist, colorist, doctor, teacher, and in this case, aesthetician. Candace Marino is one of those rising stars. Candace works out of the mecca that is Jason Emer, MD’s office. It really is way more than an office, it’s a destination. Dr. Emer is on the cutting edge of everything. Recently he performed some facial contouring and sculpting with Radiesse, Belotero and Xeomin and I am in awe. His eye is impeccable and his understanding of the face is as well. It’s the combo of artistry and technique that catapults a doctor to the top of, and it’s no wonder Dr. Emer is the most sought out person in town. I never want anyone else to touch my face – I am totally obsessed with my cheekbones right now. I look natural and just…better. Not fake, not stuffed, not tacky, not like a Real Housewife of anywhere. Just really freaking solid for my age. And well, prettier. Wow. I can say that. That is for sure not something that comes easily to me.

Ok, so in Dr. Emer’s office, the lovely Candace is doing her facial magic. Because this is a medical practice, Candace can do low-to-high grade medical peels and lasers of all kinds (I have never seen more in any office, btw). I had been really interested in the Reve peel and we discussed this but I didn’t have the downtime. So Candace looked at my skin and devised a custom facial : Dermal Infusion, Fire and Ice and Oxygen. Of course there was wonderful facial massage and cupping and it was all divine. Candace really knows her biz and also has that intuitive level of just being able to read someone’s skin. I am psyched to go back for more and really uncover even more of her talent. The practice is not a frou frou spa- it means business. Go when you are ready to really deal with your skin (once and for all). I cannot wait for you to try out Candace, you will LOVE her and everything this practice has to offer. You are in incredible hands.
